The 100+ year old home is worth the trip - beautifully crafted woodwork, tapestries, stained glass, and fireplaces. The exhibits are well done and include lots of hands on, interactive rooms. It is not a children's museum, but has been set up to accommodate all...More

I like to bring out-of-town guests here to give them an overview of Oshkosh history. Of course, the house itself (and Apostle Clock) is a huge draw itself. The cost of admission is very reasonable, and parking usually isn't a problem. Very rarely does an...More
